Recapping Gorman's scare, Green Valley's survival

Las Vegas Sun sports reporters Ray Brewer and Case Keefer glance back at last week's action, which included three of the best games of the year. Ensuing questions include debating the Sunrise Region's favorite, Bishop Gorman's vulnerability and Foothill's potential.

There’s always a question of how a team will respond off of a devastating loss.

For Las Vegas High, the answer is not too shabby. Las Vegas defeated divisional rival Silverado 27-9 Friday night a week removed from its late-game 39-38 fall against Green Valley.

“We had a heartbreaker last week,” Las Vegas coach James Thurman said. “But we fought through it.”

The Wildcats persevered by getting a big game out of running back Andrew Moreland and winning the turnover battle. Moreland had three scores and nearly 150 yards, pairing his positive outlook with quarterback Trevor Swenson who threw for two touchdowns.

Jordan Jones accounted for one of Las Vegas’ three takeaways on defense with an interception.

“Silverado ran the ball real well and controlled the clock to keep it out of our offense’s hands but the defense made plays,” Thurman said. “I thought we played well and rebounded after the disappointment of last week.”
